Understand that there are cousin three hotels which belong to the same crystal springs family. Each has its own flavor and rates. The most expensive is the Grand cascades which is the fanciest and has full kitchens with stoves. The minerals is very family and activity oriented. The crowd is also noisier but the indoor pool is the largest and most inviting. The Apalachian is very quiet and less expensive but does have full kitchens. The biosphere pool at the Grand cascades is beautiful and heated and has a slide. It is however only available to Grand cascade guests. Grand cascade guests however are entitled to use the pools and spas at the other hotels. Of the outside pools, the Apalachian is the most private least busy and best temperature. The outside pool at the GC is cold. The outside pool at the Minerals is almost too warm. The diving pool at the Minerals is VERY cold. Overall, if you have kids and don't need a stove, Minerals offered the most except for the slide of the biosphere. Otherwise there was tennis, racquetball , spa classes galore and activities all day. We had a nice time.
